#GT3 - The Audi R8 LMS sets new benchmarks in GT sport
A true GT3 race series featuring the world's most powerful sports cars and personalities. The Pirelli World Challenge focuses on a true sprint format that limits the race to 50 or 60 minutes maximum. There is no shortage of action as teams, cars, and drivers, must compete on the edge from the very start to win.


Pirelli World
Challenge Overview

The Pirelli World Challenge provides Audi an opportunity to showcase the GT3 and GT4 versions of the Audi R8 LMS race car. Inside the cockpit, drivers enjoy ABS and traction control which are options that are not available in the IMSA series. The production car based series focuses on 50 minute sprint or 60 minute endurance races with a unique standing start. The Audi R8 LMS competes in the GT and GTA classes and the Audi RS 3 LMS competes in the TC class.


Participating Teams

The Audi R8 LMS begin racing in PWC during the 2012 season. Over the years, Audi Sport customer racing has supported up to 11 cars on race weekends. The grass roots racing program began with GMG Racing's James Sofronas, competing in the GT/GTA class, and now includes several top level teams including GMG and M1 GT Racing competing in the new Audi R8 LMS GT4. The Audi RS 3 LMS returns as the 2017 TC class team and driver champion.
